Registration Now Open for 2014 IHBB European Division Regional Tournaments!
(New York City) Happy New Year from The International History Bee and Bowl! We’re pleased to announce that registration is now open for our regional tournaments across Europe in early 2014. Beginning with our History Bee and Bowl of Italy on 15 March at the International School of Milan, the regional tournament season will then run through mid-April. We are adding a link on the menu bar to the cost table as well, so you can see the prices of the tournament you are considering attending. Please note that our Northern France tournament will be held after school, so it is priced somewhat cheaper. Upon registration, we will then email you an invoice within 24 hours, including instructions for submitting payment. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us – just email email@example.com. Thanks, and good luck to you and your team!
IHBB Executive Directors Begin Three Weeks of Outreach Visits to European Schools
(London – 23 September, 2013) The Executive Directors of The International History Bee and Bowl, Nolwenn and David Madden have just arrived in Europe, and will be spending three weeks in September and October visiting schools interested in competing in this year’s tournaments. IHBB will be visiting England, Germany, France, and Switzerland during this time – visits to Spain and Italy will then be conducted later in the fall of 2013. Visiting schools gives us an opportunity to explain in detail how our competitions work, answer any questions that teachers or students may have, and in some cases, gives the students a chance to practice a bit on our buzzer system! If you are interested in having IHBB visit your school, please contact Nolwenn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IHBB is looking forward to many new schools starting to compete this year, and we wish good luck to everyone as the new school year begins. Tournament registration will open in the fall once our dates and host schools have been finalized for our European Division. Please contact us if you have any further questions.
Third Year of The International History Bee and Bowl’s European Division Set to Begin!
(Dubai – 12 June, 2013) The International History Bee and Bowl is gearing up for its third year of history quiz tournaments throughout Europe! In our first year, 30 teams competed throughout Europe; last year (2012-13) we had 42. This year, we’re looking to see a total of 50-75 teams compete at tournaments in England, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, and for the first time, Germany! Teams in the History Bowl and individual students in the History Bee who finish in the top half of their respective national tournaments then can earn a berth for our European Championships to be held at St. Stephen’s School in the heart of the eternal city of Rome in the spring of 2014.
Additionally, we’ll be partnering with our friends at the World Scholar’s Cup to give demonstrations and introductions to the International History Bee and Bowl at the 2013 World Scholar’s Cup Global Round in Dubai.
Please take the time to explore this site; it will be updated as the year goes along with information on our tournaments and results after they are held. There are also quite a few resources on the website that explain exactly how our tournaments work and how you and your school can best prepare for them. For any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
Thank you for your interest in The International History Bee and Bowl’s European Division, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our tournaments soon!
